Normally all cathedrals ans basilics are more less the same for me and it is hard for me to get surprised. This one, though, captured my attention with its Roman architecture, the inside decorations and the historical value it has. Being a place where several French kings were buried, raised enough of curiosity in me and I was not sorry... More

Another beautiful 'house of God', located near to the famous cathedral of Reims. This one is also known for its architectural beauty.You will have a sense of calmness being here.

It' a a bit of the tourist routes - 15-minute walk from the Cathedral and 10-minute walk from the main champagne cellars. Yet, it's ancient and pretty with a small park nearby. If you are tired off the crowds downtown, go there and enjoy the silence :)

Located in Reims, about 1.5 Km from Cathedral and close to some Champagne cellars, this impressive church has been named in honor of Saint Remi, who is reputed to have baptized Clovis, the first king unifying all French tribes. Here lie several Kings and royals, as well as Church ministers. Its building is monumental and specially remarkable the giant candle... More

What a great museum for a small city. The displays of artifacts dating back a million years are clear and well lighted. It is a long (nearly a mile) walk from the cathedral, but worth it if you can. The adjacent basilica is also a grand space.

An interesting building but very dark inside. We only went their because of the name and the large complex attached to it. To be frank there are better things to see.

This large beautiful church is a bit further out of the centre but worth it if you like gothic architecture.

This is an amazing basilica with so much history. Suggest you read up on it as there was no one there when we went. St. Remi, patron saint of Reims, is buried there. He lived to be 96 and there is a crown of 96 candles ( a light fixture) in the main church area.

The church is entered from the side door. It is open even when the museum is not. It has a good display of historical features as you enter and you can contextualise what you see. There is a lovely calm atmosphere.
